Baja Crossing; Punta Pulpito to Punta Chivato then back to San Carlos with Ivan & Garvin

Baja Crossing; Punta Pulpito to Punta Chivato then back to San Carlos with Ivan & Garvin

Had a great time sailing with the brothers Ivan and Garvin on a wild and wooly crossing to the Baja. We left San Carlos Monday afternoon and reached Punta Pulpito around 15 hours later. The crossing saw 25 knot winds with 6 to 8 foot seas. From Pulpito we worked our way north to the anchorages of Los Pilares and Santo Domingo. Both of which are located at the entrance to Bahia Concepcion. We eventually ended up at Punta Santa Ines, which most people refer to as Punta Chivato. Punta Chivato is technically the northern most point of the area with Punta Santa Ines the southern point. One major note of interest is that not one single light house was working between Punta Chivato and Punta Pulpito. The coast was completely dark. Not even the dangerous and shoaling Santa Ines Islands had any light houses working. The port captain over there is clearly not on the ball! So special thanks to Ivan and Garvin for coming down with us for some great sailing on Girovaga, the 37 foot Union Polaris which for all of its minor problems is still a very solid double ender that sails well as long as you have enough wind to drive her.
